The family of Philando Castile, the black Minnesota man shot and killed last week by police, has hired the former host of TV’s “Judge Hatchett” show to represent them in a potential civil lawsuit, according to her law firm. The 65-year-old TV personality is also a former chief judge of Fulton County Juvenile Court in Atlanta.

As previously reported, Castile was killed last Wednesday during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights. According to the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office said he died of multiple gunshot wounds. Hatchett said in a statement:
